These are the closest-ever images of Saturn.

They were taken by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft just days before it crashed into Saturn. The results are spectacular. Shortly after Cassini took its final image, it flew into Saturn’s atmosphere where it burned up and disintegrated.

Cassini is now a part of Saturn. A fitting end for such a historic spacecraft.
